There will be maintenance this Saturday, August 23rd, from 10 am - 2 pm PDT. As you will know by now, this is a start time of 1pm in New York, 6pm in London, 10.30pm in New Delhi, and 3am (Sunday) in Sydney.

While you will not be able to access your account during the maintenance, your ad serving and reporting will be unaffected.

Doesn't it seem like we are haveing a large number of maintenance shut downs? Historically, we dont have a shut down every two weeks.

Maintenance is a good thing, I'd say.

Thanks ASA, it's good to know the times. Would be nice, though, if they were posted on the maintenance page as well.

Perhaps that's why they don't post these times on their maintenance page :-P

****NEWS FLASH****

All week reports have been coming in from webmasters worldwide. Many claim a reasonable 2 weeks revenue from Googles adsense program.

Needless to say, this has caused quite a stir at Google head quarters. Director Eric Schmidt called an emergency meeting to quickly put an end to this strange anomaly.

Engineering vice president Stuart Feldman assured advertisers that Google engineers are working around the clock to fix the issue.

According to our sources, Google has received thousands of threats from disgruntled advertisers, who claim during the past 2 weeks, they've paid as much as $0.05 cents per click.

Must be a bad day at the G-plex. The 4 hour maintenance run, which appears only two weeks after the last one, now is at 7 hours and counting.

Maybe it's just coincidence, but I always feel as though, days when there is maintenance going on, earnings are always lowest.

I agree carguy.

Also, I noticed that I had an unusually high frequency of public service ads and black border test ads today.

Grr!

Wonder if they're in the process of shutting down the referral programs, thus leading to the extra maintenance time? It's gotta be a bit of a job to update their entire publisher network to reflect "no referrals now."

They indicated it would happen in the last week of August, so we're getting there.

(Technically eight days to the end of August, but we're in the ball park.)

Now they are 4 hours late, why they are taking to much extra time.
sure, there is some big problem.

Knowledge seeker...unfortunately, this is becoming relatively common (at least as of recent).

I can access AdSense now, however, I am showing what would be normal about 9AM.

Glad to see it was not just me as I had a slight heart attack when I saw this!
